Lecture | August 19 | 11 a.m.-12:30 p.m. | 159 Mulford Hall
Heather Gray, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory
In 2012, the Higgs boson was discovered at the Large Hadron Collider in Geneva, Switzerland. Dr. Heather Gray will explain what this Higgs boson is and why it is so important that we had to spend 10 billion dollars to build an enormous collider (and detectors) to find it. She will introduce the complex experiments that we use to study this particle and explain how we actually go about measuring... More >

Prof. Ted Sargent, Univ. of Toronto, ECE
Tremendous progress in the cost-effective conversion of solar and wind energy into electrical power brings about a new challenge: the massive (seasonal-scale) storage of energy.
We focus on using computational materials science, spectroscopies including ultrafast and synchrotron, and advances in materials chemistry, to create new catalysts for CO2 reduction and oxygen evolution.
I will... More >
Seminar: Inorganic Chemistry | August 25 | 4-5 p.m. | 120 Latimer Hall
Transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDs) have resurfaced as functional inorganic materials for their diverse applications including transistor-type devices, sensors, and hydrogen evolution catalysis. We present a more recent category of layered materials we term tetrahedral transition metal chalcogenides (TTMCs) that display different functional behavior from TMDs. These layered TTMCs are built of... More >
